Re: "calming the seas" {A digression here}: A former boss' given name was David. In college he changed it to "Zebulun." Go figure. But interestingly enough, Zebulun was one of the 12 Tribes of Israel: "Zebulon shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for a haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon."
For what it's worth, your photo brought all this back to me.
